We started with a 12" vanilla cake for the bottom tier and with the help of Margaret we decided on the fillings. The bottom is filled with a lemon chiffon. The middle tier is a 10" chocolate cake filled with a heavenly cappuccino cream and the top tier is an 8" vanilla filled with a chocolate mousse. All the black & blue detail work is made from fondant and brought to life with a little edible glitter. The # 16 topper is made from fondant/tylose mix and covered in glitter.
Now Gabriela's actual birthday was on the 4th which fell during the week so the party was being held last evening, Saturday the 8th of October which also happens to be her mom Margaret's birthday. A couple of days before the event Gabriela's brother Matthew showed up at my door and asked for a favour. He asked if we could surprise his mom with a little birthday cake. How could I say no. So as a last minute addition we made an 8" double layer vanilla cake filled with lemon chiffon. We decorated this cake with Margaret's favourite colour, purple.
cake and totally forgot to take pictures. This was taken at the venue where they added a candle for wishes.
Happy Sweet 16 Gabriela
Happy Birthday Margaret
A special day for 2 special women, thank you for letting us be a part of it. We had a wonderful time and we wish you all the best for more wonderful years ahead.
